Summary: I purchased this lens to use with a Nikon J1 camera I had recently purchased (the camera only came with the 10-30mm lens). It was shipped quickly. It was posted as used, but it was in very good condition. It has worked very well. I have been able to get good images and video as my 10 year old learns football.
Summary: Have used this lens at a few concerts so far and it takes amazing photos. I've been as far back as 18 rows from the stage and still get great close ups. Not as good at filtering light as the 10-30 mm, but still in love with this lens.
Summary: This was a great lens and for being refurbished you couldn't tell! Works great, excellent close ups, use this more than the standard lens that came with the camera, this was $100 less that full retail for the lens and no problems what so ever
